HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Good morning! Here are some things to keep your eye on:

Heat advisory in effect for North Alabama.

Heat Advisory in effect for Colbert, Cullman, Franklin, Lauderdale, Lawrence, Limestone, Madison, and Morgan Counties in Alabama this afternoon for heat index values that could exceed 105.

We'll be pushing into the lower 90s by lunchtime with highs into upper 90s. Isolated, hit-or-miss storms could pop up, but storm coverage will not be very widespread.

We stay warm and muggy tonight. Thursday brings more of the same. Dangerous heat and humidity with heat indices near 105° during the afternoon. Isolated storms could develop once again, but more widespread storms head into the Valley Friday afternoon. With greater afternoon storm coverage, highs then should be cooler, in the upper 80s. Rain is likely throughout the day Saturday, and highs will stay in the lower 80s. Lows that night will be into the lower 60s.

More than 30 victims to speak at Boston bomber's sentencing

More than 30 victims of the Boston Marathon bombing and their family members are expected to describe the attack's impact on their lives before a judge formally sentences bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death.

In May, a federal jury condemned Tsarnaev to die for bombing the 2013 marathon with his brother. Three people were killed and more than 260 were injured when the brothers detonated two pressure-cooker bombs near the finish line.

Under the federal death penalty law, Judge George O'Toole Jr. is required to impose the jury's sentence. Tsarnaev's sentencing hearing is scheduled for Wednesday morning in U.S. District Court.
